1  Arizona / Arizona: Central / Attention Tucson knitters, crocheters, and spinners! on: April 28, 2009 03:28:00 PM
I'm moving overseas in a few months, and it is *totally* unfeasible for me to take any of my yarn stash with me, which makes me unhappy, but, well, what can you do. I also have something over a pound of unspun wool of random colours, a good deal of it white and brown. Also big handspun singles of brown, and hand-dyed variegated green ones. I'd like to be able to get some money for some of this (for example, the $120 worth of various colours of Lion brand suede), but mostly it just needs to go to someone who can use it.

Pictures of a good deal of the yarn collection can be found at http://s127.photobucket.com/albums/p146/IvyElfMaid/Crochet%20etc/Yarn/. There's even more not pictured, including the fiber and homespun stuff - this is just pictures I had already taken for ravelry. PM me if you're interested in any, please!
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Tshirt quilt help! on: April 27, 2009 12:36:40 PM
So, I have 26 tshirts of some amount of sentimental value, seven of which there are things on both sides I want to use, that I'd like to turn into a quilt. Any tips or tutorials anyone can share? I've never made a quilt before o.o

edit wait, possibly 27, jsut found another in the bottom of the bin I was using for them. Don't want to recount >_<
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Suede yarn bag, finally completed two years after buying the materials! on: August 30, 2008 05:22:05 AM
I'm quite proud of how this turned out. It's in Lion brand Suede, the lower half is Olive and the upper half is Sage, one skein of each, worked up with a J hook (the recommendation on the label). The handles were on clearance at Joann's in Dec '06 Tongue

It appears my cat wanted to get in on the photo shoot! It is her house after all.

Let me know what you think! Smiley It's going to be used to carry my books around for school. I reinforced where I crocheted the handles on to make sure it'd hold up.
4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / If you cut me.... on: August 27, 2008 04:35:10 AM
I'm not positive this is arty enough to go in here, but I couldn't figure out where else to put it.

I made this a long time back on a sudden burst of inspiration. The letter of BLEED? are cut around with an exacto knife, leaving enough to hold them in place, and red paint tempera paint thinned with water squeezed through from the back. The phrase is from Shakespeare - The Merchant Of Venice.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Dr Horrible Goggles on: August 22, 2008 11:58:56 PM
After reading http://crochetme.com/blog/calling-geek-crafters-we-want-interview-joss-whedon-and-we-need-your-help , and seeing the Joss Whedon CAL thread, I decided I just had to make a pair of Dr Horrible goggles, like he wears in the picture below.

They're not very accurate, and there's a lot of things I'd like to fix if I make another pair (I am SUCH a perfectionist, you would not believe how many times I frogged and redid bits until I went AUGH I am sick of this it can stay as it is.)

Without further ado!

Laid on the desk

Held up in the air (sorry about my messy desk)

And an action shot!
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help! How should I connect these parts? on: August 22, 2008 08:43:58 PM
I'm trying to crochet a pair of goggles like these from Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog:

I have parts, and this is what they should go together as:

My problem is trying to get this




Attached to this




Anyone have any suggestions? I've tried sc'ing it on, and slst'ing it on, and neither looked right (I was working in the brown trying this because the fuzzy black yarn is an absolute b*tch to work with, I hate it with a passion but it is somehow the only black in my enormous stash). I can't find a tapestry needle in my crochet things, but if I keep having troubles I may go steal one and some thread from my mum and just whipstitch it together :/
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / What to do with a surplus of fabric on: August 21, 2008 01:59:37 PM
So I went crazy at SAS Fabrics By The Pound a while back, and I have about twenty yards total of three different flavours of black and red plaid that I have no idea what to do with. Any ideas?
8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Eeek! Lucky Me! I'm getting FREE alpaca! on: April 02, 2007 06:02:19 PM
One of my mom's friends that lives in our neighborhoods is going to visit her sister this summer.  Her sister raises alpaca.  She's going to bring me back some alpaca!  Yay!  This will be very cool!
9  Arizona / Arizona: South / Somewhere to buy fiber in Tucson? on: March 28, 2007 08:53:47 PM
Is there anywhere that sells fiber in Tucson?  I just ordered some off the Internet (Sheep Shed Studio), but it would probably cheaper if I didn't have to pay shipping.  And do we have an LYS in Tucson?  What does LYS stand for, anyway?
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / How It's Made - Cotton Yarn on: February 14, 2007 05:02:58 PM
It's probably an old episode, but its on now on Discovery (In Tucson, AZ) and I was wondering about yarn and thinking about writing them - and then my prayers are answered!  (How It's Made is so cool.....)

edit: I can't type!
